No, but how would it be any different than any other wedding (besides that the bride probably wouldn’t drink anything)?

I went to a wedding where the bride was 8 months pregnant.  It was open bar and she didn’t get to drink.  Other than that, it felt the same.  Oh… and she was really uncomfortable in her shoes, but she tossed them off and we all danced.  There are some pretty awesome pictures from that wedding. The wedding had about 100 people, and no one was surprised.  Everyone knew the situation, so it wasn’t a big deal.

i haven’t, but i agree with PP. depending on the conservative vs liberal factor, it may cause a stir among guests, but at 6 months they probably would know the bride is pregnant already.

i think if it’s a problem with anyone, then they’re not worth having at the wedding.

I did, but she had been with her FI/hubby for 17 years, so no one really cared.

She did end up buying 3 dresses because of her changing body though.

I have. And it wasn’t a big deal. The wedding was close friends and family, about 120 people.  So everyone there loved the couple and it didn’t matter!

I can’t remember how far a long my sister was but I know a couple months after her wedding she had my nephew.

She was far along but people couldn’t really notice. 

I don’t think people acted weird about it.

I also went to a wedding where the bride was 8 months pregnant. Her parents are conservative so I think they were the only ones who were slightly uncomfortable with it, and they made little jokes about it in their toasts reflecting that, like “you kind of did things backwards but we love you anyway”. I don’t think anyone else acted differently.

I have, it was not a big deal at all. I think that if people did have a problem with it they wouldn’t go?

I went to one just this past weekend where the bride was 7mos pregnant and she was beautiful. It really wasn’t any different from any other wedding I’ve ben to. The couple was in love and they wanted to be together. The only difference I would think with her was that she was more emotional than usual. But what’s a wedding without someone crying at the wedding? Tears of joy only…. Wink

I went to an intimate ceremony (less than 30 people) where the bride was about 7 or 8 months preggo.  It was all family and close friends – no one minded . . . .

I really don’t see why anyone should mind. You don’t see people refusing to go to weddings just because the couple is sexually active, I don’t know how this would be different?

I haven’t been to one, but I really think the circumstances of the pregnancy matter. I would feel uncomfortable to be at a shotgun-style wedding where I knew the marriage was occurring only because of the pregnancy. But under any other circumstances I wouldn’t be bothered by it. Most everyone has sex before marriage; some people get pregnant. As long as the couple are going to give that baby a happy, loving home I don’t care if the bride is preggo.
